Table of contents
Installing Mono Accessibility 1.0 From Source
NOTE: Latest code in GIT head may have different requirements (such as unreleased Mono and gtk-sharp2).
- Mono >= 2.4
- glib-sharp2 >= 2.12.8
- gtk-sharp2 >= 2.12.8
- nunit >= 2.4.7 (if building tests)
Since the Mono UIA packages require a very recent Mono and gtk-sharp, you may have trouble finding packages for your distribution. If that is the case, you may want to consider installing Mono and gtk-sharp from source in a parallel Mono environment.
Getting the Source
git clone git://github.com/mono/uia2atk
Download release tarballs
Building and Installing
If you have a parallel Mono environment, make sure to specify the correct prefix during the autogen.sh/configure stage.
If you downloaded a release tarball instead of getting the code from Git, use `configure` instead of `autogen.sh`.
cd UIAutomation ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr make sudo make install cd ../UIAutomationWinforms ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr make sudo make install cd ../UiaAtkBridge ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr make sudo make install
Make sure you have Accessibility turned on in your GNOME preferences, and everything should Just Work.
